About Us

Malay Taste is a range of Malaysian products created and launched in 2010. At this time, Malaysian food was becoming increasingly popular. New restaurants were popping up all over, while celebrity chefs were tempting us with their culinary trips to this beautiful Southeast Asian country. The appetites of the British public were well and truly whetted and their taste buds intrigued. There was, however, a lack of products in the UK market to enable Malaysian food lovers to recreate these delicious, yet quite simple, dishes at home. A group of individuals passionate about Malaysia, its food, its people and its culture noticed this gap and came together to fill it. The aim was to simplify this cuisine so that more and more people could enjoy the fiery, fusion flavours of Malaysian cooking. Using only fresh, local ingredients and traditional family recipes, a range of easy to use Malaysian pastes and kits was developed. With a recipe, product history and helpful tips on how to experience authentic Malay flavours on each pack, the Malay Taste range is ideal for both novices and more experienced cooks.
